UN Fears Melting Of Ice Would Concentrate Toxins in the Chinese Water Supply

The explosion at the chemical plan in the month of November released toxic substances contaminating the Chinese drinking water supply. This has created havoc in Russia also as they share the same water resources. //

But the recent report given by the United Nations includes the danger of concentration of these chemicals due to the melting of the ice. It also mentioned the need for a regular test to be carried out in a random fashion to make sure that the incidence does not occur again.

This explosion in the north eastern china has created wide spread confusion and raised alarm bells as millions of people were at risk. The UN environment program committee said that the Chinese government should take all possible steps to check the increase in the levels of chemicals during spring while the ice melts.

It said that the pollutants which are frozen would become liquid and then move on to the gaseous stage and mix with the water. Otherwise the denser liquid which was in the lower layers will become light and rise to the surface and move along with the water and cause widespread pollution.

But the Chinese environmental official denied any new chance of additional toxic chemicals to be added in the environment. They also said that if there were any new chemicals added still it would not reach dangerous levels forcing them to look for alternate sources of waster supplies.

The UN said that it will help the Chinese government t deal with the problem and also advised both the Chinese and the Russians to undertake random samples of the water resource and do a regular check.

On the other hand China has brought down a firm hand regarding pollution and informed the local authorities about any environmental crises.

United nation’s team was not allowed by the Chinese government to have samples and hence they have asked the help of the World Health Organization to intervene in this matter and monitor the drinking wat er in this region.
